An ordinary scene shifter expresses their emotions in creativity, which has strong support in everyday life and traditions of the Kazakh people. They are clearly reflected in his paintings, written in watercolor and oil, and other products.
Any creative nature has an interest in learning and mastering new types of products. Bektas Karimuly is no exception. Three years ago he began to study the art of making sculptures from animal bones. Without damaging the structure of the bones of the sheep's shoulder blade and cattle, it creates unique souvenir products.

Evidence of the recognition of Bektas Karimuly's talent is the badge "Best worker in the sphere of culture", received by him in the Bayan-Ulgiy aimag (Mongolia), the first place at the last republican competition-festival dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Victory Day celebration in the hall of the Congress Hall Astana city, diploma Altyn burkit (Golden Eagle) and the main prize of the international exhibition The Nomads.
